Hamden Teacher of the Year Program

We know that great teaching is a key ingredient of a great school system. In Hamden, we place great confidence in our teachers and support them to the greatest extent possible in their efforts to provide our students with wonderful learning opportunities and environments.
 
The Hamden Teacher of the Year program includes an annual honor to one teacher in every school. Teachers in each school nominate and select from their staff one exemplary teacher, who then "competes" among other Hamden schools' nominees in front of a district panel. The committee then makes the final selection for our districtwide Teacher of the Year.  
 

The person selected as the Hamden Teacher of the Year represents our district at the state-level Teacher of the Year competition.
